Hi There Everyone!!

I hope you have been enjoying all this months gorgeous Design Team projects, I sure have.

This time around I have created a curiousity cat page!!

I’ve used the new Geometric Cat Silhouette, and triangle foam stamp, along with a bunch of other Scrap FX Goodies.  Here is my page, I hope you like what I have created.

If you would like to see how I created my rainbow stripes, which are super easy by the way then check out my process video below.  All you need to do is click on the image and you will go off to Scrap FX’s Youtube channel.

And here is a list of all the yummy things I used to create my page;

An art journal page for todays share.

This one started with a layer of black acrylic paint and a few different collage papers including pieces cut from the Paint Your Dreams by Tanya Froud.

I used the Rainbow Feathers Collage first and glued  the Geometric Cat to this.  When I cut this out, I left a little edge so this could stand out a bit from busy background.

The Sketchy Triangle stamp was added with some white paint that I brayered on to the stamp.  I have then added a few doodles to these with white pen.  The title has been cut from the Storybook Text collage paper.

I’ve then added a Paper Crown with has been painted with a Posca pen and a little Perfect Pearls has been added.

Hi Everyone!

Had a chance to play with my gel plate while visiting with my Mama for Mother’s Day!
Always so good when I can craft and get painty fingers with my Mom.

It’s so nice to be able to have a chance to visit
and do it again after a long 2 years of not being able to see her.

In April both my nieces had birthday’s, I can’t believe they are 20 and 17!!

We went out for dinner to celebrate and I took this picture of
them and wanted to use it in one of my journals. Lucky Auntie!

For this project I used these Scrap FX products:

Blossom Stem Stamp

Segment Circles stencil

Wildflower frame SMALL

Seed Stem Stamp, large

I also used a Dina Wakley 6 x 6 journal, a 3 x 5 gelli plate, acrylic paints, a black pen, stamps and stencils,
Ken Oliver colour burst powders, black archival ink,  random left over paper, bubble wrap, gel matte medium.

I spent a few hours just playing around making random prints on my gel plate with inks, ink powders,
acrylic paints. After I had a bunch I decided I better get to work making a journal page
with my picture of the girls. I picked some of the prints that were orange/pink colours and adhered
bits of a few of them to my journal with gel matte medium.
I then added some more bits of paint with my fingers as well as with some
stamps, bubble wrap, and stencils. I painted the
frame with a pretty contrasting teal blue and glued down the picture and
the frame. Then I went back with a black pen and
hand lettered the quote about sisters on the other side and
added some vines. I love all the grungy bits of the pages!
Here are a few close ups so you can see all the layers and bits.

And the finished piece

See you again in a few week! 🙂

Just be awesome- you can do it!!

Hi everyone,

It’s Claire, back with another Design Team project for ScrapFX for May!

I’ve started another Kraft junk journal and couldn’t wait to use this butterfly, and find a different way to fix it into the journal.

There is also a video on YouTube of my last completed journal.. click on the image below to see it

So, here goes….

Junk Journal Kit KRAFT

I hadn’t sewn the butterfly into the journal when I made it, so I added some colour to it using a blending tool, I used Amsterdam acrylic in Permanent Red Violet light and Azo Medium yellow and DWM in turquoise.

These three colours blend so beautifully together…. and are, I think, one of my favourite combinations.

Next I used the Wise words collage paper and added a piece the same size as the page using some gel matt medium.

Wise Words collage

Once this was dry, I used the circle masks and some pale colours of paint and added some colours to the page. I used Amsterdam acrylic in Persian Rose, Blackberry and Orchid (DWM) and added layers of circle masking.

Circle Masks

Next, I added some stamping using the Chickenwire, stamping using a Fuschia pink ink from Stazon Ink.

Chicken Wire Stamp

Then using my sewing machine I added the butterfly onto the right hand edge of the page, and finally stencilled some words at the bottom using the Dream Big stencil designed by me!

and that’s it!!!

I Everyone,

Today I present to you a small art journal simple to make.

True to myself, I used some spray to make the background.

I used a stamp with numbers and black ink. Then I glued rice paper with my clear gesso.

 

I used white paint so that I could color it with another spray color.

Then I used some green to make a visually interesting color combo.

To finish the creation, I stamped the xxx that I contoured with a yellow and coral sharpie and I used my mini round stamp.

An outline in black acrylic paint extended to the fingers and my page was finished.

Many products have been used, here they are:

  

  

Have a nice day!

Don’t leave yourself behind…

Hi Crafters!

My turn up on the blog today with a mish mash of new and old!

I was lucky enough to spend a great weekend camping at a retreat recently with my besty buddy Tanya Froud and we scrapped and journaled til our hearts were full.

The art journal page I am showcasing tonight was created on that retreat and Tanya and I were BLOWN AWAY by the versatility of the circle masks from Scrap FX, we both created with the circle masks and came up with different techniques using different products.

I love using shapes to frame focal points on my projects and the masks are such a great way to achieve that.

I just love the softness of the distress crayons and how they blend so easily on a page and coupled with the masks, just turned out perfectly.

I love the trees collage paper and I thought that it would be great to use them within the circles.

I also used a few feint white lines to created a cross behind my quote for the page.  A great way to draw your eye to the quote or any focal point on your page.

Let’s take a look at the Scrap FX products used:

Hi there!

It’s been a little while between posts but IM BACK!

I recently got to spend some time at retreat and got some time to create with lots of fun products.

For this page I literally started with an idea to try and replicate the bokeh effect using the circle masks in various sizes and blending inks in lots of layers…

I then got a lightbulb chipboard piece and traced it (then put it aside for another project) and filled in the bulb outline with watered down gesso to make it translucent. I them used pencils and crayons to add details, like the shadows and the string lights.

I then used the bumble bee from the collage sheets to finish it off.

Products used are….

Circle Masks
Bees Collage Paper
Lightbulb Frame

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time…..

Baby’s Best Friend Layout- Chrissi M

Hello Lovelies,

I have a rather clean and simle layout for you today using some of the new doggie themed chipboard.

I started by using the Paw Pads Chipboard.  By adding paint to the chipboard, while still wet, I have stamped it onto my layout to create my background. I love how this worked out. I kept the rest of my layout simple, and used the chipboard to embellish after painting it a darker brown.

I then used the new My Dog Theme Pack for my title.

The new chipboard was perfect for my photo of Ruby with her doggy Sam.

To see this layout come together, head to the Scrap FX Youtube Channel.

As always I have used lots of gorgeous products to create some gorgeous layers on the page.

For a little change to start the layers I used my very rarely used Gelli Plate.

Now I am no expert in creating with the Gelli plate but it was lots of fun and I really should do this more often.
